Photographs ???
Yes, photos - I'm almost 50 and this Casio Exilim EX-Z2300 is the first real camera I've ever owned (discounting the Kodak instamatic that worked for around 2 months in the 70's). Got this one at the Gadget Show Exhibition in Birmingham in around May?? 2011, didn't go there with the intention of buying anything but couldn't resist - price £97 inc. 4GB card ;) Camera drawbacks - not great on anti-shake or in low light conditions, otherwise excellent !

Devious Journal Entry
Hi all, The BMFAC contest results are out: http://www.fractalartcontests.com/2011/winners.php This year's entries were in my opinion yet again an improvement on previous years however I'm a little disappointed that few of the 3D entries even came close to the best 3D Fractal Art you can see on DA or at http://www.fractalforums.com/ so I hope next BMFAC (whenever it is) there will be a lot more 3D work submitted. I'm also again disappointed at the shortage of good Apophysis, Incendia or Xenodream entries.

My Birthday !!! Thanks for the comments
Thanks for the birthday wishes. Now I have to go get some new jeans with my birthday money as 2 pairs just became unusable (broken fly, large knee-hole) - well I think both pairs were more than 15 years old ;) I hope to finish "i.Candy" for OSX this week (x86 Leopard and higher I think, though may require Snow Leopard). Also I've managed to get a fairly good version of the "Diamond-Square" landscape/fBm/plasma algorithm working in shader 2 for Apple systems, so some sort of planet-based game is possible in the near future at least on OSX if not iOS. Also soon I should have a little more spare time to get on with a shader fractal program b
